This book explores Czechoslovakia's diplomatic relations with African states and places them within a wider Cold War historiography, providing contextual background information on the evolution of communist Czechoslovakia's pro-Soviet foreign policy orientation. This shift in Soviet foreign policy made Africa a priority for the Soviet bloc.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Based on careful research in both Czechoslovakian and U.S. archives and a strong grasp of the relevant secondary sources for broad context, Muehlenbeck's book once again displays his persuasive writing style and insightful analysis. ... This book adds another very important piece to the puzzle of foreign-relations history during the Cold War, and should be consulted by all scholars of post-WWII African international affairs." (Andy DeRoche, H-Net Reviews, H-Diplo Roundtable Review, Vol. 18 (19), March, 2017)

"The author organizes his book on a chronological principle and around major cases. ... The book should be read by those interested in Africa's history and politics, as well as in the history of the Cold War. The author has presented to the English-speaking world the unknown Czechoslovakia, as another European country, which used to be an important actor on the African scene." (Sergey Mazov, H-Net Reviews, H-Diplo Roundtable Review, Vol. 18 (19), March, 2017)
